Goldfish

Album: Sophisticated Beggar (1966)
  • songfacts ®
  • Running to 2 minutes 47 seconds, this Roy Harper composition is the second track on his debut album Sophisticated Beggar. From it we learn that he likes watching his goldfish and loves the baby sitting on his near, a logical hierarchy if nothing else, though he would have done better to ditch the inane words and record this as a half decent acoustic guitar instrumental. >>
